On page 169 of the fine book -- The Heart of Newman -- Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman grapples with: 

The Omnipotence of God.

"When we confess God as Omnipotent only, we have gained but a half - knowledge of Him.

"His is an Omnipotence which can at the same time, swathe Itself in infirmity and can become captive of Its own creatures.

"He has,  if I may so speak, the incomprehensible power of even making Himself weak. 

"We must know Him by the Names, Emmanuel and Jesus, to know Him perfectly..." 

Way to go, Your Eminence! :)
